Thursday 26 October 2023

Caritas Luxembourg is currently looking for a wide range of volunteers:

Centre Oasis, Wiltz:

The team of Oasis Centre would like to continue all the efforts made over the last twenty years to promote the empowerment of non-Luxembourgish residents living in the Wiltz region and to improve their participation in Luxembourg society through innovative actions that favour their integration and contribute to social cohesion.

If you are motivated to help us to help better, come and reinforce our team of volunteers. These activities could be, for example, tutoring, art workshops, conversation classes, introduction to computers or support in administrative procedures. We are always open to your interests and suggestions.
